When evaluating veterans, it’s essential to be aware of the unique attributes of this population.  This workshop will cover background information on veterans, including their strengths and struggles, and suggestions for conducting an effective data collection process.  Community resources to access participants, questions to ask or avoid, and other considerations to be mindful of when interviewing both male and female service members will be discussed, as well. Participants will have a better understanding of military and veteran perspectives and will have specifics to make evaluating this diverse group more effective.
